gotta work on your skills
the big motor is for big areas tho when it was running I would take my buggy to the beaches and feilds set up jumps with the size of it and that kinda power its can be hard to handle and it would chew through steering servos till I upgraded to a HD one

Theres my little beastie. Not a pavement princess, so a Bench Wheeler?

I've been having shifting problems with the transmission (Won't go to second gear) and the engine has no compression anymore, but otherwise it was a blast.

I want a revo though. Those look badass. But until I can afford to play Nitro more, I'm gonna get a HPI Wheelie King 4x4 RTR for Crawling and bashing.

If ya got no comp on your motor a cheap fix is scoring around the piston very lightly using a tubing cutter like the ones for cuttin mild steel brake lines it acts like a piston ring by creating a raised ridge

I'll have to try that.

I say your boss owes you a new car though.
